i use switch for flac to mp3 and it can also do shn but you have to buy the upgrade for shn http://www.nch.com.au/switch/plus.html most of the time i use trader's little helper for converting flac and shn's since i do most of my listening in wave format or winamp to play the shn/flac files http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/ . trader's little helper is a nifty tool.

tiger,

does switch convert the flac to mp3, or does it make a separate mp3 file from the flac? ie - is the flac file still there when you are done.

There are also free 3rd party plugins for the Nero 6 software at www.afterdawn.com if you use that CD burning program. Free plugins for just about any other audio format that you might encounter too.

Just unzip them into your Nero plugins folder like you did with Win Amp and other media programs. Works like a charm for me...

D,

TB had previously recomended Switch and it is a great program. Every time I have used it the original file remains intact and a new converted file is created.

Most of the time I am converting flac/shn to wav for cd burning, but it should work the same for mp3 conversion.

Take heed of what tigerbolt has to say on the matter. He knows as well if not better than anyone else.
